We publish a new Gran Canaria weather forecast twice a week. Our forecast is based on information from the Spanish and Canary Islands weather services plus satellite and radar data. We try and be as accurate as possible but also admit to any mistakes (it's a small island and sometimes, weather just misses it) and try to explain them. Check here if you are coming on holiday to Gran Canaria and want to know what weather to expect.
For detailed information about the weather and climate in Gran Canaria, including a monthly guide to what temperatures and weather to expect, see our Gran Canaria weather guide.

20.03.2017: Wow, that was fun! After a stormy weekend in Gran Canaria with heavy rain showers all over Gran Canaria things are getting back to normal so expect sunshine in south Gran Canaria this week.
06.02.2107: If you've watched the Gran Canaria weather forecasts for next week, you'll have noticed that they look a bit gnarly. There's definitely weather incoming but we're not exactly sure what it is yet.
02.02.2017: This weekend will be sunny all over Gran Canaria with little or no wind. There may be the odd afternoon shower in the south. The North Shore will be hammered by huge waves tomorrow (Friday).
16.12.2016: The Trade Winds Pick up from Today and will be strong over the weekend. They bring cloud and showers to north Gran Canaria, but the south of the island will be a mix of sun and clouds (it may even rain).
